Astronauts on the ISS are playing with slime while waiting for new cargo shipment
Earlier this week, Japanese space agency JAXA fired off a new resupply to the International Space Station. With such a busy week aboard the ISS — new crew members also arrived this week — the shipment of science experiments and supplies has somewhat flown under the radar, but now it's crunch time, and the resupply mission is expected to arrive at the orbiting laboratory on Saturday morning.
The cargo spacecraft from Japan is carrying over four tons of supplies for the space station, including vitals like food, along with scientific hardware and experiments. In the meantime, the crew is playing with slime. Yep, slime.
